You dial-up users, do yourself a favour and get a registerable copy of Windows 98 so you can get updates from Microsoft. All the midi software works fine, the drivers are availible, and there's no Messenger Service pop-ups! Plus the thing shuts down straight away. Sweet. On Windows 98, I can get software to work properly, like the Yamaha CBX driver that interfaces with my QY100 on the serial port. Plus no conflict with the PCMCIA modem. So why use XP anyway if you're not networking!?
